CRN Names Arcserve Finalist for Data Protection Software 2021 Tech Innovator Award

Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) 8 has been named a finalist for the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. Arcserve UDP is recognized for its ability to stop ransomware, restore data, and perform disaster recovery. The CRN announcement notes that “the solution brings together server protection powered by deep learning with immutable storage and business continuity that is scalable and offered both onsite and offsite.” CRN’s annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories in critical areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. A panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria to choose the winners. Those criteria include key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and the ability to address customer and partner needs.

Data Protection That Delivers IT Resiliency

Arcserve UDP uses a multi-layer approach to deliver complete IT resiliency for virtual, physical, and cloud infrastructures. It is the only product on the market that offers a complete solution to neutralize ransomware attacks in the cloud or on-premises. Arcserve UDP’s backups are secured by Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, a robust first line of defense against ransomware. Pairing Arcserve UDP with one or more OneXafe storage appliances offers native immutability to stored backups. That adds next-level protection from ransomware for your backups, with immutable cloud storage for backups powered by Amazon AWS S3 Object Lock.

Arcserve UDP 8 Protects Critical Backup Infrastructure From Malware and Hackers

Arcserve UDP 8 adds several other valuable features not available in previous versions:
  • Native Oracle Database backup safeguards critical backups from data loss, disasters, and ransomware with native data protection integration via RMAN, supporting Oracle RAC and ASM on both Windows and Linux platforms.
  • Nutanix Objects and Nutanix Files support secure disaster recovery and backup of Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), powered by integration with Nutanix AHV, Files, and Objects.
  • Supports backup and recovery of Microsoft Teams data (in addition to already supported Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business).

Arcserve UDP Brings New Opportunities to Channel Partners

By including Sophos Intercept X Advanced, Arcserve UDP brings new opportunities to channel partners, making it possible to offer your customers’ data protection and cybersecurity in a single solution. This combination lets you give your customers a formidable first and last line of defense for backups.

Gartner Promotes Arcserve to “Challenger”

On the subject of industry recognition, in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software, Arcserve is the only vendor Gartner promoted to “Challenger.” Arcserve UDP was a crucial driver in earning this recognition. The Magic Quadrant cited Arcserve’s breadth of platform, malware detection, data recovery capabilities, and cost of ownership as key strengths.
